lose five pounds more in the short term than those following traditional diet plans.
Vegetarians, who allow themselves eggs and dairy, still did fairly well.
But giving up eating animals is tricky, and it’s not just because we crave the occasional bacon cheeseburger.
Animal products are our primary source of protein and other important nutrients like vitamin D. And plenty of unhealthy foods from Oreos to Red Bulls to Airheads—could be considered part of a vegan diet.
Be sure to keep your body full of protein and healthy fats as well as good carbs.
It’s one thing to not eat meat, but it’s another thing to eat your veggies. You need to do both, like Courtney.

Convince your mind and you not only change your body, but you’ll also change the world.
